BOOK I WANTED TO STOMP ITI wanted to stomp it the ground with my air of atent leather umps However somewhere along the lines I started to enjoy myself a bit I d hear a strange sounds coming from my mouth only to realize Oh my that was a chuckle In many ways I can really see why so many eople would really like this book but I 15 stars Welcome to yet another teen romance masuerading as a Times of Bede paranormal novel If you re like me you ve been salivating to read this book for months because of the breathtaking cover and of course theremise of a girl waking up in a hospital with no memory of how her friends were killed is The Catechism of the Council of Trent pretty intriguing I m sorry to say however that the maddeninghenomenon I m calling cover fraud strikes again since this is another book whose interior does not live up to its beautiful cover artMara Dyer doesn t know what happened to her friends the day that a building collapsed on them nor how she somehow escaped miraculously unscathed The family decides to City for Sale: Ed Koch and the Betrayal of New York pack up and move to another town to get away from intrusive attention and so that her lawyer father can take on a highrofile criminal case Until this The Runaway Prophet Jonah Study Guide 1998 point things areretty interesting and I wanted to know what was going on just as much as Mara did Except suddenly a boy enters the Književna groupie 2: Strovaljivanje picture and Mararetty much loses all common sense interest in figuring out why eople around her keep dying And that s when I lost my interest in this book tooI rarely have trouble adjusting any reconceived expectations about a book s content which is why I m able to go with the flow for books such as Divergent or Delirium which weren t uite what I expected but I liked because the authors handled certain aspects of them very well So if this was going to turn out to be a romance book with the Davids Sling paranormal stuff thrown in as a bonus well I d be fine with it if I was sufficiently entertained The issue with this is that if the book isn t entertaining and the romance doesn t work for you the whole thing is doomed And this romance did not work for me at allNoah Shaw is one of those guys you re supposed to find charming in spite of yourself He s arrogant he s got a smart mouth he has a deviant grin and he s slept with just about every girl he s ever looked at As soon as Mara sees him she seems to be struck dumb view spoilerhee hee hee struck dumb hide spoiler Warning this review contains flashing gifs and foul languageI ve spent two years avoiding this book I remember in 2011 when I stumbled across that exciting GR description andretty if slightly creepy and discomfiting cover but my initial curiosity was uickly dampened by the reviews from my trusted goodreads friends And for nearly two years I have listened My intentions were to never give this bookseries another thought until I recently came across this interesting Reality Hunger: A Manifesto.
